Radio killed the Vaudvillian Star
A "This is your career!" film focusing on the (then) many oppurtunities you can have working in radio, and oh yeah, television. Surprisingly, this mostly focuses on the technical side of things, eg radio tech careers, and not say, broadcasting. So to sum this film up, Boys! don't even think of becoming a radio engineer unless you've got the training, otherwise you'll just be hired to assemble the radios (with the girls).
